Well, its a nice town, a nice team, it’s got …. wait, what?!

That job pays HOW much?

OK, suddenly that job just went from awesome, to … well awesomer.  $35,000-$40,000?  To live in Santa Barbara and coach lacrosse?

How much would they pay an equipment manager?

In all seriousness, that job has got to be one of the best in the MCLA given the program’s location, history, school support, alumni support, and access to talent.

So that got me thinking,

What IS the best job in the MCLA?

Vote below in the comments.  And provide reasoning.

I’ve got a few ideas, after hearing your comments I’ll compile a master list and we can all debate the best (and worst?) coaching jobs in the MCLA.

Have at it!
